a year ago. He had formerly played
baseball and football, which accounts lor
his superb athletic build.
On the links Prescott is the acme of
coolness; nothing bothers him. Ho
meeis good und bad breaks with the
same stoicism. He never loses Tiis tem
per and plays his best golf under the
greatest mental strains. Ills opponent's
game has no effect on him.
To the casual observer Prescott seems
to play carelessly, but the reason for this
is that his Judgment of distance and « if
conditions is so remarkable that lie gets
